Tips to Reduce the Waist

Fast Food Tip: Request mustard over Mayo and save about 100 calories. You may even discover that with time, you prefer the tangy taste of mustard over Mayo.

Some juices contain more calories than regular soda, ounce per ounce. Opt for the original Real Deal - an orange rather than orange juice, or a cup of fresh pineapple rather than a cup of pineapple juice.

Variety is the spice of life and the life jacket of your weight loss plan. Mix it up! Salads, soups, and sandwiches get mighty old after a while.

Purchase a thermal bag for transporting homemade lunches to keep food fresh from contamination.  

Taking your lunch also helps ensure that you are in control of what you eat and you will be less likely to succumb to any unexpected food temptations that may come your way.

Opt for ground turkey over ground beef which contains less calories and fat. Odds are, you won't be able to tell the difference in your recipes.

Dieting Tips, What to Expect While on a Reducing Plan

A dieter may experience 2 weeks or more on a weight loss plateau. The good news for those faithful dieters is that once the weight loss plateau peaks, weight loss generally ensues at a rapid rate.

The dieter should be prepared to face several weight loss plateaus while losing weight. How many? The more weight one has to lose, the more plateaus they will face - and conquer!

Healthy Kitchen & Cooking Tips for Dieters

When preparing homemade cheeseburgers, opt for skim milk based cheeses and blot excess oil from meat before adding to bun.  Toast bun using no calorie butter spray or non stick butter spray.

To take the bitterness out of cucumber, cut off the top and rub it against the flesh of the cucumber.  It will produce a light foam.  Cut off the end topped with foam, then peel and slice.

A diet high in vegetable content may help lower cholesterol, conquer obesity and contribute to a longer life.

When purchasing ground beef, look for the leanest offerings possible. Once the meat is cooked, drain excess liquid which will help remove unwanted fat and calories.

Dieting can be expensive and many times our budget only allows for those cheaper cuts of meat. Grab a container of meat tenderizer and let's get to cookin'!
